Little Hearts

My daughter (that's her in the rainbow suit) just got home from camp. The past few days I've heard about each girl from her cabin-in detail. I've laughed over stories and smiled over pictures. But nothing, absolutely nothing, beat tonight when I tucked her in. Holding her purple, dragonfly edged Bible she sat on her bed. "Can I show you one more thing from camp, Mom?"

She opened it. Found the index. Paged to Isaiah. Silently read a few words, then laid it on her bed with a nod. With all the motions she'd learned she said:

"Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength,
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint."
Isaiah 40: 30&31

I love when little hearts get filled with His heart.


  1. Thanks for sharing this. This is one of those precious moments in a christian moms life...when her children open the Word of God and are excited about sharing it! :)

  2. Wow! From out of the mouth of babes...Wonderful Mommy/Daughter moments! So beautiful to see the Lord at work in our children's lives!

    *Your daughter looks so much like you! Precious!

    Thanks for stopping by Life Lessons!I appreciate your comments. Remembering who we belong to, goes a long way toward tempering our speech. When I submit to His will and pray prior to difficult situations, I can be victorious in my words. Appreciate your honesty and insight! Have a beautiful week.

    Hugs & Blessings!

  3. Such an awesome testimony for you as a Mom. She's going places. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Ladies, thanks so much - those moments are the ones I think I treasure most. I tell my kids all the time I cannot wait to see what God has in store for them:)He has a plan for their lives and we get to help them discover it.

    Oh, and I have been told she resembles me...maybe just a little - ha!

  5. Maybe just an identical spitting image! :o)
